We hiked there from Praia Dona Ana and it was a beautiful walk. We also kayaked there from the center of Lagos - but you probably get to see more by walking and exploring on your own. Beware of precipices and falling rocks.

WoW what a beautiful place - we got the little train for 2.50 euro return each person, it leaves from the marina and runs every hour i think it was and stopping at all the beaches on the way

Amazing spot by boat and land. We took a boat ride through the cliffs and thought it was amazing and then took to the views from land. It was great to see both views and to climb the stairs to get further into the cliffs.

I walked from city center along the cliff top trail to Ponta da Piedade. Yes, that was a lot of walking, but on cliff top? You just don't get to do THAT anywhere. Simply breathtaking. Of course you can take a trolley ride... But if you enjoy hiking, no brainer. Try to go down to the Grottos by the stairway beside te lighthouse. The other way to enjoy the Grottos around Ponta de Piedade is to do a kayak tour. I did that another day, completely sifferent perspective. On days with high waves, you may want to take a motion sickness medication before you head out. ;)

A must see while here. Great photo opp's! Get the little trolly for 2.50 euro return, leaving from the Marina and stopping at all the beaches on the way there. Runs every 20 mins or so, so no waiting around when your done snapping, hit the beach.
